The incident that happened in Pell City Alabama and which was covered by many international tv stations, was filmed with a Phantom 2 and a modified GoPro.
The footage starts right after the demolition team tried to destroy the smokestack with TNT two times. They then used a bulldozer do finish the job but the result was a life threatening situation for the machines’ operator.
First the building broke straight down but suddenly tipped right in the direction of the bulldozer and buried it under a large cloud of dust and tons of bricks.
Luckily the operator survived without serious injuries but he, for sure will never forget that day.
